As I supposed this dish came out perfect and we all enjoyed it very much.<br/>The blend of spices was delicious and this made a delicious sidedish to chicken marinated with a combination of yogurt, turmeric, ras el hanout, salt, pepper, coriander ground. To complete the set I suggest a small portion of plain yogurt served with the potatoes and the chicken and in summer a cold vegetable soup or some salad. <br/>Enjoy this delicious potatoes!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set a pot of potatoes to boil and cook until tender. Small golden potatoes will cook in about about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, fry up those cumin seeds in some vegetable oil until fragrant and just beginning to color (30 seconds to a minute).
  3. Toss on the onions and cook until “meltingly” soft and then stir in all the spices, salt, and pepper, sneak a taste and smile.
  4. Halve or quarter your potatoes, as desired, and add to the onion mixture. Squeeze on a little lemon juice, as desired.
  5. Toss until completely coated with golden, sweet spiced goodness. Serve hot with fresh lemon slices.
